KS4 Med-link visit

On Monday 14th December 24 students from Y10 &  Y11 visited Nottingham University’s Med-link conference to discover how to successfully train to become a doctor.

After travelling down on the most luxurious coach we have ever seen (actually Newcastle United’s team bus –  with leather seats,  Sky TV and a Playstation in the rear lounge!),  we arrived at the conference centre for an informative day of talks and exhibitions.

The students talked to a wide range of providers in the Exhibition,  including Universities from around the world, Gap year organisations and companies dedicated to helping students gain a place at Medical school.
